For A While (coming soon)

In a final meeting, Laura chooses to say goodbye to her departed loved one.

For A While is a short film by Kilian Mayer. According to him, the film deals with the slow death of a part of oneself: »You dream about each other, the new reality sets in only slowly. One blames oneself for the problems of the other. Like a ghost, it haunts one’s head day and night. The treatment of the subject matter is inspired by Virginia Woolf’s short story A Haunted House. She too treats the house in which her story is set as a time capsule. So many moments were created here, they live on here until they slowly fade away. If anyone asks when the film is set: I don’t remember, some time ago.«

The film features the MJK single Passing Through, for which a music video was also shot on location, directed by Michael J. Keplinger. The song, written & produced by Michael J. Keplinger (MJK) is set to be released through DIEgital Records and distributed by Sony Music Austria. In For A WhilePassing Through is accompanied by choreography by Simona Ascher.

For A While is set to be released in spring 2024.
